DALLAS, Texas - Brendan Lemieux could see the smiles on the Winnipeg Jets bench as he skated by for fist bumps after his second goal of the night put his team ahead of the Nashville Predators 5-1.
"It gives the guys a good laugh when they get to see me come down (the line)," Lemieux said after the victory. "It doesn't happen all that often."
But the team might be getting used to seeing Lemieux in that position a bit more often - especially since Dec. 31, 2018.
That night, Lemieux registered his first multi-goal game in his NHL career. Those goals were important, as the Jets beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-3.
Add in the two the 22-year-old scored against the Predators, and Lemieux is up to five goals this season - four of them in the last 18 days.
